ST. BEDE THE VENERABLE

MEMORIAL: MAY 25

St. Bede the Venerable lived in the 7th century and was a Benedictine monk. He was ordained a deacon at the age of 19, but was not ordained a priest until he turned 30. St. Bede is known for his avid devotion to prayer, contemplation, and scholarship. He wrote more than 40 books in theology, biblical commentaries, science, literature, and history. Because of his wisdom, many of his works were read in churches while he was still living. His monastery also became a destination for those seeking guidance. Despite his immense knowledge and wisdom, St. Bede maintained that prayer, fasting, and acts of charity were the most important pillars of his life. After his death, St. Bede was declared a doctor of the church.
